The History of Middle Earth - Volume 7 - The Treason of Isengard
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

I don't like the Iliad ... It's too long and hard to understand

I quite enjoy Homer. The language is really just epic, which is good compared to the cruddy novels of today.

I'm reading A Hero of our time by Lermontov and I must say that I like it... Last week I was reading The Black Cat by Edgar Allan Poe and I think that it is also a great book, although a bit short.

The Iliad now well underway. It's longwinded in parts, but it is pretty kickass IMO.
